Greetings, HeroClix Fans!
Today we’re taking a closer look at one of the figures from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Wonder Woman Gravity Feed. Today’s subject is none other than the scarlet speedster himself, The Flash!
Portrayed here in his DC Rebirth costume, this version of Wally West is indicative of his time with the Titans. The 005 version of The Flash is a 60-point piece, has 4 clicks of life, and possesses the Titans team ability. He begins with a trait called Titans Together, which states that if another friendly character healed this turn with the Titans team ability, modify The Flash’s attack value by +1 this turn. He also possesses two special powers – the first of which is called The Speed Force Strengthens Me, appearing on all 4 clicks of his movement dial. This power states that The Flash can use Hypersonic Speed, and when he does, he can use Steal Energy and modify his speed value by +2 – letting him move up to 11 squares!
His second special power, Velocity Impact, appears on his first two clicks of damage. This power states that when The Flash uses Hypersonic Speed, his damage value increases by 1 this action for every 5 different squares he’s moved through this turn! He follows those special powers up with the standard powers Quake, Super Senses, Combat Reflexes, and Close Combat Expert.
While one version of The Flash is good, two are even better! This gravity feed provides you with a second version of Wally West. The 008 version of The Flash ups the ante by increasing his point value to 85, as well as his clicks of life to 5. He also picks up Improved Movement – Ignores Characters, allowing him to move fairly freely throughout the map. He also trades in the Titans team ability for both the Police Department and the JLA team abilities. He has one trait, called The Red Blur, which states that when The Flash is given a move action, he may make a close attack during the move. Pairing this trait with his standard powers of Precision Strike, Super Senses, Combat Reflexes, Perplex, and Outwit, this version of The Flash operates as more of a support piece to your team and menace to your opponent than the straight combat version of the 006.
That’s it for today, ‘Clix fans! Be sure to check back in soon as we look into more exciting previews from upcoming sets! Until then, don’t be afraid to push!
